were able to make that flight? >> sure, so i was on the flight from san francisco to houston. trying to catch the last flight of the day from houst ton lubbock. and i knew that it was very likely that i might miss the last flight. so i asked the flight attendant if you know, i told the flight attendant, sophia, about you know the situation. and so she said she would do everything she could. well well i guess she did. you know, after the service and an hour or so later, another flight attendant came back and said the pilot was asking for the flight number from my flight from houston to lubbock. i guess they radioed ahead and made sure that everybody along the way knew what was happening. >> you had fallen to pieces in your seat. realizing that you're not going to be able to make that connecting flight and the flight attendant saw you crying and wanted to know what was going on. and you know, from the flight attendant to the pilot, and beyond, everyone was very empathetic and understanding your situation and really wanted to make something happen for you. >> and they did. and so that's

, the sierra cl club. he joins us from san francisco. >> hi, fareed. thanks for having me on. >> tell me why i'm wrong. >> look. what you're saying sounds very reasonable, but we need to meet the challenge of climate change with all of the ambition and inspiration that we have to offer. what we know is that tar sands oil is dirtier than conventional oil. what we also know is that we shouldn't be spending $7 billion on a dirty and dangerous pipeline when we know that clean energy will do a better job. >> if you look around the world, is this the worst form of energy? there's dirty coal plants, for sure. i know you've done good work on that. i totally support you and the sierra club on it, but what i'm struck by is why are you signaling out this one when, you know, at the end of the day the greenhouse gas emissions profile is not going to be that different given that we continue to consume the stuff. why not try to do something about that consumption issue? >> i appreciate the point. the work that we're doing on coal relates very closely to this. over the last three years more than 140 u.s. coal
different from san francisco startup. >> it is completely different. yeah. i went from a company of being one of 400,000 to one of one. >> reporter: she left her comfy job to enter the risky world of technology startups, a career that leaves little room for a personal life. leah uses her own company to handle mundane tasks like laundry and grocery shopping. perhaps not surprising, more women use taskrabbit than men. in 2011, san francisco magazine compared her to zuckerberg, and placed her head on his body. in an essay for women's 2.0, she wrote she was honored but at the same time it was disheartening to see my head placed on a male's body. as if masculine features are synonymous with uber success. >> i've never been a male entrepreneur, so i'm not really sure what sort of challenges they may face versus my own. being an entrepreneur is hard, all around. it is not easy. >> reporter: she repeatedly says she doesn't focus on gender. still, the other top executives at taskrabbit are also women. she says they were just the most qualified. overall, she says the staff is about 50/50. >> the ba
sexuality a former nfl player now says he is gay. an emotional interview with the former san francisco 49ers quayne herrick only on cnn next. >>> a former nfl player is coming out of the closet and opening up about his sexuality for the first time. we're talking about kwaim harris, former offensive tackle for the san francisco 49ers recently outed in the media. the nfl is not necessarily known for its acceptance of gays, and not one player currently in the nfl is openly gay. covering the cnn exclusive is a former nfl linebacker and frequent guest on the show. coy, good to see you. >> good to see you, too. >> you played with quame back at stanford. he revealed to you in a personal way why now is the time to reveal while he was gay, not as an active player but as a former player. why? >> the thing about this is quame is such an impressive guy. he not only was one of the best football players at stanford, he was playing masterpieces on the piano and violin and none of us knew for certain but we could have assumed as much but we didn't care. i went back to the college field and i learned about t
, include san francisco and kansas city, but most of them are smaller. they're more remote airports, which have contracts with local security companies. your company, garda, provides passenger screening at 27 airports and canada. what have you been able to offer the government that the government couldn't do itself? >> the canadian government went through the same thing as the u.s. they turned it around and said, how can we do this in a more efficient way? every single county in the world does it that way. we bring different efficient measures throughput more efficiently. a good example, in canada a few years ago, they had issues in terms of budget. they came to us and said could we do things differently? in just one, region we're able to cut the budget from 264 million. if you take the same scenario in the u.s., 1.5 billion is going to the screeners and 1.5 billion to the oversight. this is totally ridiculous. tsa needs to get their act together and i think this event this will push the pressure on the u.s. government to look at the business and more importantly. >> stefan, i have to cut
, and go to san francisco and monterrey and carmel. we were going to do a little trip for four days and we were talking about that and she was excited at doing that. so we had planned that since january. and i just wish we could have done that before this happened. >> i can't imagine the pain of losing a child, and i know that people say, well, if you die doing what you love, then that's okay, but it doesn't feel like it's okay, you know, you've lost a 24-year-old girl, you know, you're not going to get to see her in all those, those times in life, the wedding, the child, all those things that i know that you and your wife would have been looking forward to. is it enough that she died doing what she loved? >> you know, it is. and that's the only way i can bear this. because, this was her dream. she was living her dream. she was the happiest she ever was. and that makes it possible to bear this. dianna -- and by the way, i noticed the media has been reporting that she was mauled to death by a lion. i just got word from the coroner down there doing the autopsy today and the co-workers and th
smoking, to turn down that music? by the way, get those happy meals away from children. remember when san francisco tried to stop restaurants from handing out toys in kids' meals that lacked the right amount of fruits and vegetables. kids don't go to mcdonald's for fruits and vegetables. this is from a city that prides itself on being open-minded. back in 2002, before he took on the sugary soda earbuds, michael bloomberg pushed a ban on trans fats in new york restaurants. is that something the new york mayor should be worried about? is it the government's job to make us better people? david, i want you to weigh in because jerry said he's got -- he says he has every addiction known to man. he can weigh in on that. but, david, you wrote the book on it. >> let me give you an example. christopher hitchens who died from cancer from smoking, probably, i heard him say once, without smoking, life wouldn't have been worth it for him. i find that sad. but i'm just saying that -- i've read the constitution. it doesn't say anywhere that i have to be healthy. i'm not sure why anybody should be coercin
drake was desperate to get from san francisco to lubbock, texas, to see his mother who was dying. he was on a united airlines flight to houston when he realized he would probably not make the connecting flight which was the last one of the night. drake tells us what happened next. >> so i candidate the flight attendant if, you know, i told the flight attendant, sofia, about, you know, the situation, and so she said she would do everything she could. i guess she did. you know, after the service and an hour or so later, another flight attendant came back and said the pilot was asking for the flight number for my flight from houston to lubbock. i'm guessing what happened next is that they radioed ahead and made sure that everyone along the way was aware of what was happening. i got to spend the night with her and my dad in the hospital room that night, and about 4:00 a.m. was her last moment of coherence where she woke up, and then the following moment she was dead, and had i not made that flight from houston to lubbock, i would not have been able to say good-bye. >> when he returned, d
. >> thank god the girl is fine. you remember back in san francisco, there was a woman killed by two dogs in her apartment building. and the owner of those dogs wept to prison for 15 to 20 years for that manslaughter. >> uh-huh. >> that's my question here. is there some kind of negligence. or is there some kind of recklessness, or any other kind of charge that you can think of that a dog owner who has a dog with his propensity can face in this incident? knowing all the facts that we don't have but knowing what we see? >> right. i would hope they try to change the law that's on the books. at least on the assault charge. because if you know the dog is dangerous and you fail to take precaution, you should be responsible for that. the judge is right. that's the problem with laws in this country with animals. they don't address the fact that the animal can be a dangerous weapon. i'm not saying that dogs are necessarily inherently bad. but there are circumstances and. and owners need to be held responsible for that. so in a case like this, if he knew the dog was dangerous and he failed to take

it was san francisco frannen stein in there. paul, is there one of those cases where people can wheel their wheelbarrows to that office and sue for you name it? >> a lot of people think that, but i was checking the oklahoma medical malpractice statute and there are limitations of damages in oklahoma. $300,000 cap on what they call noneconomic loss which is pain and suffering. the hard part about this case, you know you've been treated with a contaminated instrument and you're afraid you develop hepatitis or aids, but you never do. should you be compensated for that fear. very hard to prove that. so these won't be easy medical made practice cases. so leave the wheelbarrow at home. somebody who has actually developed hepatitis and we can tie it back to that dentist, that's a good case. but the other cases not such a great case. >> how about one further. paul said somebody who has developed hepatitis and can tie that hepatitis directly back to the clib i go. what if that person walked freely among us with a dormant disease for years and years affecting other people? >> exactly. isn't tha

from san francisco is peter ruben who covers pop culture and entertainment for "wired" magazine and their new cover talks about the new age of television. thanks for joining us. the big question of course is netflix the new hbo? >> they're certainly going in that direction. i think there are a few contenders for the crown. when you consider what netflix did with "house of cards" and throwing money out to make a new show it certainly looks like they're making a play. >> who are they competing with? >> well, you've got a lot of streaming services doing original programming for the first time. amazon who has instant video of course has green lit a number of pilots for comedies and children's shows and then you have services like crackle doing original programming for the first time, but netflix really sees itself as moving into a space that's been dominated by pay cable, premium cable if you will. hbo, showtime has moved into that space big time with homeland. but what they did with "house of cards" everyone hollered they were spending a hundred million dollars to make this show bu

own experience in san francisco and what she has seen frankly across this country. so we'll work on this and find the votes and it deserves a vote. let's see if we can get it done. >> one of the most controversial policy aspects of this administration has to do with drones. you have been part of the system first when you were with the national security council and now also where these secret robot planes kill people, hopefully enemies of the united states, but there is little accountability according to critics, little transparency, and little legal recourse for the victims who are innocent. would you be comfortable with the same situation you have in place right now under a president palin or president ryan? >> here's what i -- you know, again, i'm not going to try and engage in hypotheticals. here's what i can tell you, jake. the president of the united states will take every step he can to protect this country and that is exactly what he's done. there are also very important checks and balances in our system to allow for the kind of oversight from congress so that the steps he
